Margaret Leng Tan, toy piano
This piece was written for Margaret Leng Tan. Ms. Tan plays the Schoenhut toy piano.
According to Tan:
Stephen Montague was born and educated in the U.S. but has been living in London as a freelance composer since 1974. Montague wrote for Tan's toy piano sight unseen (sound heard over the phone) with strict admonitions not to exceed its three octave compass.
